As a parent, I understand the challenges of introducing new foods to my little ones. When I came across the recipe for Chicken Mummies, I saw it as a fun and creative way to spark their interest in tortilla-wrapped foods.


  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, each cut into 4 equal long pieces

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 large whole wheat tortillas, cut into 1/2-inch strips

  • 16 slices green olives


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet or spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray over medium-high heat; cook chicken until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate to cool enough to handle.
  • Wrap each chicken piece with a tortilla strip, starting at 1 end and overlapping tortillas when starting a new strip and leaving a gap at the top for the ‘face’. Place ‘mummies’ on a baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until tortillas are crisp and chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Cool mummies for about 5 minutes; place 2 olive slices on each ‘mummy’ for the ‘eyes.’

I gathered the ingredients and started preparing the Chicken Mummies. The recipe was simple and straightforward, making it ideal for involving my kids in the process. We enjoyed rolling up the chicken and cheese in the tortillas, forming them into little mummy shapes.

Once the Chicken Mummies were baked to golden perfection, I presented them to my children. Their eyes widened with excitement at the adorable mummy appearance. I encouraged them to take a bite and was delighted to see their willingness to try something new.

The Chicken Mummies turned out to be a success! The combination of flavorful chicken and gooey cheese wrapped in a tortilla captivated their taste buds. It was a satisfying and enjoyable meal for the entire family.

I felt accomplished knowing that I had found a creative way to introduce new foods to my little ones. The Chicken Mummies not only sparked their interest but also made mealtime a fun and memorable experience.
